A little about me...

I am a native Chicagoan, born and raised on the South Side and South Suburbs.  A North Side resident for more than 20 years, and I currently live in the Ravenswood Manor neighborhood.  I have a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, and ten years business experience prior to my real estate career, in accounting and purchasing.

I have been in the real estate industry for 19 years, and in residential sales for the last 15.  I have over $78 million in closed transactions, concentrating in residential sales (condos, single family homes, and 2-4 flats) in Chicago’s Downtown, North, and Northwest Side neighborhoods and nearby suburbs. 

  • I work as both a buyer’s agent and a listing agent, with about 60% of my business as a listing agent, but I always enjoy working with buyers!
  • Areas of specialization include Chicago bungalows and related styles of vintage single-family homes, condos in vintage buildings, and 2-to-4 flats on the North and Northwest side
  • In-depth knowledge of downtown and North Side city neighborhoods and the many suburbs
  • Strong negotiating skills with a “numbers background” to back that up
  • Experienced with both short sale and foreclosure transactions
  • As my business is built on referrals, I work to give my clients the best in customer service, and to make buying or selling a home as positive and as smooth an experience as possible

My awards and designations include Accredited Buyer’s Representative, e-Pro, Coldwell Banker Sterling Society, and Chicago Association of Realtors Top Producer.   I am a member of the Chicago, Illinois, and National Associations of Realtors. 

 

As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
